To tho Voters of Rend:
It appears from their letter to tho

Light & Power Co. are anything olso

foro tho voters the full report of tho
commissiona deculon and order In
the recant rate hearing of the Com
pany Insofar as It pertains to the
electric utility, even though they say
that they nro "obliged" to us for
publishing It. It Is quite npparont that
if tho company had desired tho pub
lic to read all tho Commission had to
say about their business methods
thoy would hnve published the report
hofore wo did. We vonturo tho as
sertion that the company would hnve
been still moro obliged to us If wo"
had not published tho report at nil.
As oxplaincd before, thnt portion of
tho report portalnlng to tho water

to publish only that part. We say to

Is hurtful to the conrpnny, for tho
part that stings .most aside, from de
crease in profits, nro tIioerarta

Tho cut in rates must necessarily

tho Rend Flour Mill franchise was

was granted and the flour mill cut
off his company would be compelled

the flour mill was cut off. yet the
